Summary of "Risk of Gonococcal Infection During Vaginal Exposure is Associated with high Vaginal pH and Active Menstruation."

An understanding of the biological reasons why 25%-35% of women resist infection during vaginal intercourse with a man infected with N. gonorrhoeae could lead to novel control measures. We sought modifiable biological bases for infection resistance by comparing women in the same core-mixing group who did or did not become infected after sexual exposure.
